[quote=cheese_sdc]The Church is a living, breathing organism that can change. It is not perfect, it is being perfected. So that leaves some room for growth and change. The Church is also heavily influenced by the culture around it (and that’s not necessarily a bad thing). We need to open our eyes to be able to say: this thing is not right; let’s tweak it this way and see what happens.
I don’t hold with the idea that the church is an unchanging monolith of an organization. It makes mistakes, and by the grace of God, muddles through them.
